Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

As depressing and, in many cases, clearly pointless as the coronavirus restrictions have been, nothing is quite as infuriating as seeing the very people who tout the lockdowns flout them. The latest – and perhaps wildest – example comes from Austin, TX, Mayor Steve Adler. Mayor Steve had the audacity to film a message imploring his constituents to stay at home and avoid crowds – while vacationing in Cabo! As ridiculous as that is, it’s far from the only example of rank hypocrisy from our glorious leaders, who demand we peasants “do as I say, not as I do.” Setting A Bad Example Mayor Steve Adler In early November, Mayor Adler hosted an outdoor wedding and reception for his daughter at a hotel near downtown Austin. Despite health officials warning about a COVID-19 spike believed to be on the way, there were 20 guests at the party. That’s not a huge wedding, by any means, but it is twice the number of folks who are supposed to be gathering in one place, according to the so-called experts. The very next day, Mayor Adler and seven of those wedding guests flew to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, where they spent a week at a family timeshare. It was just one night into the trip that the mayor addressed Austin residents in a video posted to Facebook. “We need to stay home if you can,” Adler said. “This is not the time to relax.” It must have been infuriating to Austinites suffering from cabin fever to discover later that the man telling them to stay at home was enjoying Cabo with friends and family. “We are going to be looking really close …” he continued on the video. “We may have to close things down if we are not careful.” So, despite his 20-guest wedding party and the Mexican vacation, if the common folk of Austin didn’t fall in line, he would start shutting the city down?
